Since its release in 1993 Disney’s witch tale “Hocus Pocus” has become a cult classic for a generation.

“Hocus Pocus” is about three witch sisters resurrected in Salem, Massachusetts on Halloween night after three centuries by a virgin.

The film also stars many notable names including Bette MIdler, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy, Thora Birch and Omri Katz. However for one star the film jump started her career. Actress Vinessa Shaw only had one small credit under her belt when she portrayed Allison, the beautiful girl Max (Katz) was trying to impress.

Shaw went on to star in many films including “Eyes Wide Shut” and “3:10 to Yuma.” The actress can currently be seen as determined journalist Kate McPherson on Showtime’s “Ray Donovan” Season 2.
